What did you like best about Dust? What did you like least?

Like knowing the characters from other books seem like friends.
However, the actual progress of story line really slows.

If you’ve listened to books by Patricia Cornwell before, how does this one compare?

Hate to say this--"Dust" is one of my least favorites.(Have read ALL her books…)

Which character – as performed by Kate Reading – was your favorite?

Marino.

Do you think Dust needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No…needs new story line.

Any additional comments?

Needs to get story line back to basics…"forensics"

Holds your attention form first word.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I like the small number of people in story...as it is easier to 'keep track of characters" when listening.

What other book might you compare The Scarlet Ruse to and why?

i can only compare to authors other books because his writing style is one of my favorites.
Continues to include some of same characters in other books, like old friends...

Which character – as performed by Robert Petkoff – was your favorite?

I do like his performance....but I must admit I still think of main character as performed by Darin Mc Gavin in many past books. Just part of my memories....

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not extreme but sort of shocked at extent of main characters injuries..

Any additional comments?

Love the name of his houseboat--"Busted Flush"--won it in a high stakes poker game..

Author gets better with every story.

What did you love best about The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection?

Simple approach to complicated situations. I loved the fact that Precious finally got to meet her longtime mentor. He tried to explain that he was not the expert she had admired for all these years. Precious, in her simple approach to her life in Botswana, maintained her faith in his expertise and enlisted his advise in a case.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection?

When they foiled the plans of wealthy man who conspired to change the whole concept of the Orphan Farm by building a 'communal" Dining room...in doing would have lined his own pockets.

Have you listened to any of Lisette Lecat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Have listened to many--this one was equally well done.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My main reaction was pure enjoyment with every chapter.

Any additional comments?

The main reason these books are so enjoyable, in addition to the great story lines, is that they are read with "English" accent. Just reading the words in a "regular' book, you miss all the nuances built into the story line. The pure simplicity of the lifestyle so well depicted by the author, is brought put by the readers talent.
